Department Website

Program Description

Information Systems (IS) is a multidisciplinary field that is growing in importance as the information technology revolution transforms the scale of data, the nature of products, the organization of work, and the way people interact. The Stern IS department has played an active leadership role in defining the fields of data science and business analytics, engaging in cross-disciplinary scholarship in computer science, economics, machine learning, marketing, management science and urban science. PhD students at Stern have the advantage of working with IS faculty who also maintain close research ties with the digital, banking, advertising and media industries, which gives our students access to unique “big data” for research as well as opportunities for experiential learning.
